2nd Annual Hats off to the Homeless – December 22, 2018

The Creativity Shell is once again inviting Rochester’s children ages 8-17 to our Rochester studio at 1984 Monroe Avenue to help make hats for the homeless.

Last year, children from the Rochester area made over 150 hats that were distributed to the homeless as well as refugees that were experiencing winter for the first time in Rochester, NY. This year, the Creativity Shell hopes to double the output with a goal of making 300 hats.

Workshops will be held at selected times from on December 22nd. Parents are asked to sign up their kids ages 8+ for a “Hats off to the Homeless” workshop online  (adults are welcome to come and sew too but must be registered. Registration is required so the staff can prepare enough supplies and have machines available for students to work on.

During a 1-hour workshop, students can make as many hats as possible.  The Creativity Shell is asking for a $10 donation/student to help pay for the cost of fabrics, supplies and to help pay for the cost of the Creativity Shell outreach program that will teach Free sewing classes in homeless and refugee shelters in 2019.

Date: Saturday, December 22, 2018.
Times: 11AM, 12PM, 1PM
Registration: 8+ (Unless the student has been in one of our classes and has machine sewing experience)
Cost: $10 Donation
